At the Acton Coop, children are always treated with respect. Our approach to education is based on an understanding of the individual needs and development of a child. Our goal is to maximize their growth and development. Staff and parents work together to make each child's experience an enriching one. Children participate in individual choice and group activities. The teachers direct play in ways that allow children to develop self-control, self-confidence, and interpersonal skills. Parental involvement allows parents to understand and have input into their child's school experiences, individual progress, and developing friendships.
